For this year’s plenary, we are thrilled to have one of the leading industry voices in HPC innovation - Diane Bryant.  She is the senior vice president and general manager of Intel Corporation’s Data Center Group. The technologies Diane’s group delivers are used by researchers in a wide range of advanced modeling tasks including ones that simulate how heart valve tissue responds to blood flow and how genes and proteins affect Alzheimer’s risk.  Before leading the Data Center Group, Diane was Intel’s Chief Information Officer where she was responsible for driving Intel's own IT infrastructure and software, supporting product design, manufacturing and a variety of business functions. Diane has been with Intel since 1985 when she started as a design engineer, and she holds four US patents.   She is a strong advocate for women in technology and this year earned a spot on Fortune’s list of most powerful women in business.
